I was looking into a BTR-60 yesterday and am sure they mentioned the transmission was meant to be pre-shifted into the next gear and depressing the clutch engaged the new gear while making a hissing noise like an air solenoid. I could be mistaken but distinctly remember thinking "how odd".
Perhaps research the BTR and see if it matches. Both are Soviet Bloc units.
Hope it was remotely helpful.
Nope.. That is with the OT90, Which has an epicyclic gearbox, A sort'a copy of the daimler Pre-Selector gearbox.
The BTR60 has Two Petrol engines TWO gearboxes and ONE single Hydraulically operated clutch. And ARE a t..t to drive and change gear in. Remember that both engines have to be synced together.
The BTR 80 (I would love one!) was a better version with the single (Huge tough) V8 kamaz diesel engine in it.
Gear changing is best Always Double Clutching.
